    Yup, I was really expecting the worst but so happy to see just how well the OE filter did.



    I have found the OE paper filter on the JK to do significantly better than any K&N or otherwise but after a run like this, I would still find traces of dust inside the air tube and oil that was dirtier than I would think is normal. In fact, I would normally change both right afterward. This time around, my air tube on my JL looked surprisingly clean and my oil, something I had just changed before the trip, still looked good as well.
    Oh yea I know in my experience in racing in the desert paper filter is always better than any CAI we would even run a pre-filter. Would running a thin layer of grease on the edges of the stock filter help make a better seal.

    I was going to but after seeing how clean the air tube was, I didn't bother. I may still when I get a chance though.

    Possibly. Fortunately, the edges of the JL paper filter is a soft silicon like seal. I think it does a pretty good job all on its own.

    In the process of changing my cabin filter in a 17 JK I found it didnít come with one from the factory. Donít know if this is common but I was surprised for sure. It was when I did the 20k service.

    I had done some research when I wanted a cold air intake for my truck. I was surprised to find out there wasnít much difference between oem and upgrades. The newer filters actually allow a much higher volume of air through than before and much cleaner . Testing and technology is getting better year after year.

    My 2011 didn't come with a cabin filter either.

    An important lesson I learned from this forum is to change the filter regularly. And that is just on my JK. Glad to see a quality factory filter on the JL. Iíll be sure to change that one....assuming I ever see dust again.

    Thank for the vid!
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
